We, this people, on this small and drifting planet

Whose hands can strike with such abandon

That in a twinkling, life is sapped from the living

Yet those same hands can touch with such healing, irresistible tenderness

That the haughty neck is happy to bow

And the proud back is glad to bend

Out of such chaos, of such contradiction

We learn that we are neither devils nor divines.

-Maya Angelou


For those of you just joining, this Quarantine collection is a special capsule of work inspired by this unique moment in all of our lives.  I'm doing a painting a day, working to capture the emotion and energy around and inside me. 
I've priced each one at $200 to make sure they are in reach for many who may be affected financially.  However, I've been sad to hear that some of you have been frustrated by not being first to the store to buy a piece that speaks to you.   So today, I'd like to experiment with a new lottery process that I hope keeps things fun and fair.  
Interested buyers will have the full day today (9am-5pm pst Friday the 17th) to express interest by filling out the form below.  At 5pm pst, I will randomly select a name from the list (using the random generator).  I'll email and DM the selected person, who will then have a full 24 hours to buy before I move down the list to the next person.  Afterwards, I'll purge the list.  None of your information will be used for any other purpose.
I hope this process feels better.  Let me know what you think in the comments on today's IG post.  
And thank you for your continued support.  You all have inspired me during this dark time.  Stay safe and healthy in body and mind.
Today's sale is a wrap!  Thanks to all who participated.  I'm reaching out to the winning entry w/in the next hour.  We'll try this again in the coming days to see if it's working well for everyone.
Wishing you a beautiful friday night!

(This new process was inspired by Bloodroot Blades.  My husband is a huge fan of their hand crafted knives and enters their lottery every month.)
